Improved Stamping Lubricant Performance Test Developed

IRMCO Stamping Lubricants, through a cooperative partnership with Bennett Tool & Die (Nashville, TN), has developed a tool and test method to directly compare stamping lubricant performance prior to use in production.

IRMCO's iTOOL cup-draw process measures and compares frictional forces and deformation temperatures of one or more lubricants compared to the incumbent lubricant. Customer-supplied metal blanks are used to evaluate lubricants to assure the closest correlation to actual production conditions experienced in the field.

Housed in a 300-ton AIDA servo press, iTOOL allows for reproducibility and control of test parameters and data collection.
